The transdisciplinary art collective now working in Puerto Rico adopts the name Vueltabajo Teatro in Barcelona, Catalunya in 2012. It was born with the initiative of re-habilitating and activating a space: Magatzem Voltaire in Poble Sec, dedicated to art investigation and production. Its creative collaborators have been working together for more than 10 years now. The collective has developed methods of creating repertoire based on “practice as research” (presentations, residencies and laboratories). Each artist creates a seed (concept) and together research the use of diverse tools: physical theatre, movement, performance, street theatre, visual arts, media experimentation, music, site-specific.
About Narices Negras:
A duet of characters that stumble upon everyday situations use their imagination to create worlds that help them cope with their routines. Common household chores are taken to the street, making the personal habits public, as something very natural. Narices Negras are nomads, floating on the frontier.
The performers use street theatre techniques, clown and corporal mime to shape their training. Improvisation and site-specific work is essential during the creation and investigation process for further developing the characters, thus the piece itself.
